Halladay on track for Tuesday start in LA
DENVER -- Roy Halladay made his first rehab start Thursday night for Class A Clearwater, giving up three hits and one unearned run while striking out four in three innings (61 pitches). Halladay, who has been on the disabled list with a right lat strain since May 28, is in Denver for Philadelphia's weekend series against the Rockies. Manager Charlie Manuel said the right-hander is still on track to return to the Majors on Tuesday against the Dodgers.

"It looks like [Tuesday]," Manuel said. "He felt like he did good [Thursday night], that he threw well."

With Halladay (4-5, 3.98 ERA this season) back in the fold, Manuel expects the Phillies to start making up some ground in the National League East race.

"That'll help our rotation," he said. "And if we can get [Chase] Utley and [Ryan] Howard to start hitting like they can, that's going to help our whole lineup, plus that's going to create more energy, life and want-to. We'll win more games, there's no reason why things won't work out for us. And we'll give it everything we've got."
